If Jennifer Lopez Sings, Do We Not Hear Her?

The Popdust Files: jennifer lopez
Jennifer Lopez’s voice is often deliberately overshadowed by dancing and elaborate staging, but that doesn’t mean she wants to negate her vocals all together. (She is an American Idol judge after all!) Lopez made it through the entire running time of “On The Floor” during her performance at the annual KIIS-FM Wango Tango concert in L.A. on Saturday, apparently unaware that no one could hear her until Pitbull whispered the sad truth in her ear. But it wasn’t quite an Ashlee Simpson-on-SNL-level snafu. Rather then get flustered or apologetic, Lopez merely instructed the band and stage crew to give her a mulligan on the song—and extra set time. (Watch and learn, Selena Gomez.) “This is what show business is all about, baby!” She asked the crowd to join her once again, but not before threatening to axe one of the Staples Center employees. “Give me one second, they’re working hard. Who’s getting fired tonight? Somebody’s getting fired tonight!” And that’s how it’s done, kids.
But here’s the real question: Is “On The Floor” better with or without sound?
